Kind of lays bare any claims from Team Bush re: concern for WMD, or stopping terrorists, or pretty much anything except that their entire agenda since day one has been greedily sopping up the public gravy with whatever they can grab with their grubby little fingers:
A former White House aide under indictment for obstructing a leak probe, I. Lewis Libby, testified to a grand jury that he gave information from a closely-guarded "National Intelligence Estimate" on Iraq to a New York Times reporter in 2003 with the specific permission of President Bush, according to a new court filing from the special prosecutor in the case, THE NEW YORK SUN reports Thursday.
Remember, Valerie Plame was working--as far as we can tell, with some degree of effectiveness--to counter proliferation of unconventional weapons. Way to go, Shrub.
FDL has more.
You know, it takes a lot of "hard work" to be that incompetent--I mean, shit, I guess most folks are now aware of the rather, ahem, lax hiring practices within DHS...and let's not forget the entire Katrina/Rita debacle: the assclowns in charge have volumes of resources that would make King Midas look like a piker, but were too goddamned stupid to effectively organize anything but Brownie's dinner plans.
And Iraq? Operation Daily Body Count, full speed ahead.
Team Bush is so incompetent, I think the otherwise pitiful Democratic Party might actually have a chance this November...
